now that i've read the story, it's an incredible overreaction by the club. it's worthy of a fine, but 50k? good lord. especially given what he's being paid now, that's a huge chunk of his income.

same thing, that he got fined 50k for trying to hook in with a girl. i get that it's against their conduct code, and with all the controversies and whatnot, but to hear them say they were thinking of sacking him altogether... that's ridiculous.

COBL, about the leagues problems, they are being magnified enourmously by a ravenous media that have no regard for content. Melbourne only hear negative stories, because they like to think the AFL is better behaved, and more popular. In the end, this case, and even the Sharks case, nothing happened that was illegal. If a player broke club rules, the club deals with it, and its over. If he acted fully within the bounds of the law, it isnt a scandal, its not even worthy of column inches.

If we really want to fire shots accross the bow, I could say a fair bit about the AFL's drugs policy. It virtually invites players to use. The first instance, players are told by the testers not to do it again. The second instance the club doctors and management are told, the thrid instance the AFL and media are told.

It is a baseball rule where you get 3 goes. SOmething as serious as drugs should be a hard and fast fine/suspension immediately

you also failed to mention that almost everything being intensified this year happened years ago. the group sex in christchurch was 2002 - seven years ago! zappia was a year or two. the league wasn't in a pretty place between 02-04, and everyone can admit that. but that was the better part of five years ago - if this is the best (or worst) that can be found to slam the nrl, it's a bit pissweak.

Just to clear up here, I really haven't meant to start a war here.

Point taken. And yours too there, Ian. Rugby gets woeful coverage down here, the only things we've heard so far have been the Johns, Zappia and now Clinton stories, so yeah. It's the way they're playing it out down here, not sure how it is up there. I was on Johns' side in the gang-bang business.

You certainly could, as there is literally nothing stopping an AFL player from taking drugs one or twice, nothing at all. The fact is that drugs and/or alcohol abuse is rampant.

It's worth remembering that Ben Cousins has yet to test positive.

that's fine, but don't brag somewhere else about the responses you get - it doesn't reflect well on your intentions.

anyone watching on tv would have fallen asleep while the result was still in doubt and thus still don't know who won

Fail = the knights, I never saw the game but wow!

Even the panthers did better then that, at least they scored.

Its a shame the panthers didn't beat manly, they had promoted the pink thing for a while around penrith and then they went and lost the game.

How did this thread die? What a fucking awesome game of rugby league on Wednesday night. Great to watch.

Although, local AFL journo Damian Barrett wrote this article, and I'd like to know what you think ian, because I agree with him.

AdelaideNow... How can you do this and get away with it?
